If printing does not work using Flip, check the following.

If Flip displays a message indicating a printer failure

Check the printer, connected to the printer server, for power supply, paper feed, connection, and other conditions.

If Flip cannot connect to the printer, or printer functions do not work

Check the Flip and printer server for network connections.

  • Check to make sure that a valid static IP is in use.
    book iconIf using a dynamic IP, the Flip should reconnect to the IP each time the printer server IP changes. This may affect the network connection.
  • If the printer server uses multiple IPs, a connection may not be established automatically. If this is the case, manually enter the printer server IP from the Flip to establish a connection.
  • If no response is returned after a ping test between another computer and the printer server, check the firewall settings for the printer server.
  • If the system is protected by antivirus software, the assigned SSL port may be blocked in the firewall settings. Enable the ports in the anti-virus software settings.
  • Check that the printer and Flip are connected to the same network.

If the printer server power is off

Turn on the computer where the Software is installed.

If the printer server conflicts with another server

If another web server is installed on the same computer connected to the printer server, the computer may not function as a printer server properly due to port conflict.
To prevent port conflict, it is recommended that another web server not be installed on the same computer.

book iconTo install another web server from the same PC, use a port that is different from the one assigned as a SSL port.

If a cropped image is printed

Flip can only print on A4-size paper. Make sure that A4-size paper is loaded in the paper tray and that paper size is set to A4 in printer settings.

If the ratio of a roll page on Flip is different from the printout

In Flip 1.0 the roll page layout matches the aspect ratio of A4 paper, and the printout is as displayed on the screen.
For Flip 2.0, the width of the roll page in landscape orientation is greater A4, and the page margin on the other side is greater when printing.

How to check that the printer server works

To check the printer server status, launch the diagnostics tool (/Applications/NetPrinting/DiagnosisTool. app) and click Start. The tool diagnoses the print server connection and automatically saves the results.
